My 3 year old loves it, and I still read it to her now that her brother is 6 months old. He has been referred to as 'our Autumn baby' from pregnancy onwards, because of the Winter baby in this book.
A perfect gift for a little girl expecting a brother.
My only slight reservation is the handling of the concept of jealousy, as 'Sophie' is forced to play alone in the garden when mummy and daddy are too busy with the baby.
Harsh stuff, huh?
Indeed it is. I'm ambivalent about this book because all that happens is that Sophie has to put up with a sibling and learns to live with being less important than she was. How this is supposed to reassure children expecting a sibling I can't imagine!
